At the meeting of Presbytery on Tuesday 2 March 2021 at 7pm by ZOOM, the Presbytery Planning Implementation Committee is expected to report that the Basis of Linking of Eddleston, Peebles: Old and Stobo and Drumelzier Parish Churches has received concurrence from the Presbytery Planning Task Group of the Church of Scotland. Presbytery will also be invited to set a date from which the linking will take effect. An appeal against the decision of Presbytery to implement the Basis of Linking can only be raised during the Presbytery meeting, by a Kirk Session or member of the Presbytery, and only on certain procedural grounds.
The three congregations are hereby cited to attend the above meeting of Presbytery for their own interest. This means that any member of one of the congregations may attend the meeting of Presbytery and may speak (but not vote) on the proposed Presbytery implementation of the Basis of Linking.
If you would like to attend, the ZOOM invitation link can be obtained from the Presbytery Clerk or from your Session Clerk or Interim Moderator. It would be helpful if the Session Clerk or Interim Moderator could let the Presbytery Clerk know the names of those planning to attend to ensure that the ZOOM system allows admittance to the meeting.
